The Defense Information Systems Agency last month awarded 11 contracts for systems security services.

Through the Information Assurance and Information Technology Capabilities contracts, Defense Department agencies place orders for three areas of service: computer network attack and defense; education, training and awareness; and standards, architecture, engineering and integration support.

The winning vendors are ACS Defense Inc. of Burlington, Mass.; Artel Inc. of Reston, Va.; Computer Sciences Corp.; Electronic Data Systems Corp.; Logicon Inc. of Herndon, Va.; Pragmatics Inc. of McLean, Va.; Science Applications International Corp. of San Diego; SRA International Inc. of Arlington, Va.; TASC Inc. of Reading, Mass.; Veridian Information Solutions Inc. of California, Md.; and Wang Government Services Inc. of McLean.

The Defense Information Technology Contracting Organization at Scott Air Force Base, Ill., handled the procurement.

The contracts have a three-year base period and four option years. In all, DOD agencies can buy up to $1.5 billion in services through the program, DISA spokeswoman Betsy Flood said.
